There are now – officially – 368 learning management systems (LMSs), learning content management systems (LCMSs) and talent management systems on the market.
That is the view of Craig Weiss, a former Brandon Hall analyst turned e-learning thought leader, guru and blogger (see: http://elearninfo247.com/ and http://elearninfo.com/). The US-based Weiss has listed all of them – from ‘4System’ and ‘AACS’ to ‘Zumo Software’ – along with illuminating and, at times, personal comments.
What is interesting – apart from his comments – is that, in November 2010, there were only 321 of theses systems on the market. Maybe spring isn’t just the time when nature proliferates.
